Prenatal Testing and Diagnosis

Chooising the appropriate testing strategy is crucial in providing the best care for your patients.

This is why CENTOGENE offers a turnaround time of ten business days for most prenatal analyses (known variants, deletion/duplication analysis, single gene sequencing) and of less than 15 business days for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analyses (CentoXome®, CentoGenome® and CentoArray®). In addition, our medical experts are always available for your support before, during, and after the analysis.
